National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims
September 25 is the date of the National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims (NDRMV), designated by the U.S. Congress in 2007, to recognize the impact of homicides on surviving loved ones and communities.
A Time For Healing, will be focused on therapeutic exercises for everyone in our community. We will begin with healing activities for the children and older youth in our community, at 4:30 p.m. The overall program, including the Reflections of Love Speak Out, will begin at 5:30 p.m. Please reach out if you would like to volunteer for this event. Call our main office/crisis center at 340.773.9272 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For 10 years we have commemorated NDRMV here on St. Croix, with events and activities in support of surviving loved ones, including opportunities to express their feelings and bring attention to the violence that plagues our local and global communities. The Wall of Remembrance, a visual presentation of the names of murder victims on St. Croix since 1974, is updated and featured at our events and on our Facebook and YouTube channels.
